Home Learning - Week Beginning 18th May

 

This week's topic-web is designed to get you all thinking about homes. This theme is about considering the importance of our homes and the people in them. We will be thinking about the different homes people (and animals) live in and how these are adapted to different needs and consider various activities that take place in our homes.

 

Whatever year group you are in, you can work together on aspects of the topic theme. Select activities from the topic web that you would like to do - either on your own, with your brother/sister, or together as a family.

As always, we love seeing what you have been up to, so remember to e-mail your teacher with pictures. Thanks to all the children and parents who have already sent things through to us - we love seeing and hearing all about your lock-down experiences and Home Learning!

 

In addition to the topic-web work, your teachers will have set you Maths and English work that is specific to your Year group / Class.

See the notes below the topic web.

It has been lovely getting emails from many of you keeping us up to date with things you have been doing. We have had great fun reading all about them and putting some of your photos onto the different galleries on the website.

Why not check out the galleries in each of the topic folders on the 'Home Learning' page (under the parents tab) on the MOSPS website to see what your friends are getting up to. This week there have been fantastic handcrafted vehicles and rockets, lots of research on space travel or travel around the world and numerous paper plane competitions!

English

 

This week, we'd love to see some of the writing you complete as part of our Home topic, or, in fact, any writing linked to the comprehension tasks in the links below - remember you can send us photos of any writing you do via Gmail. 

 

This week we have set you five further tasks tasks to complete on Education City - try to complete as many as you can over the week.

 

Once again, we have uploaded a reading challenge for you to complete this week, (created by the Hampshire English team). There are two options: The Snow Dragon (for children who are working below age-related expectations) and The Street Beneath My Feet (for children who are working towards age-related expectations and above). The pack is based around the extract included and is designed to take 1 hour so we would recommend splitting this over two 30 min sessions or even three 20 mins sessions.The pack is based around the extract included and is designed to take 1 hour so we would recommend splitting this over two 30 min sessions or even three 20 mins sessions. 

If you would like something else, then visit the BBC Bitesize website and access some of the Reading Activities (either this week's, or any that have been put on the BBC website before).

Maths

 

Once again, thank you to all of you who have been doing your My Maths tasks each week. We are impressed with the scores coming in. Your teachers are responding to your efforts using the My Maths Feedback, so don't forget to check. 

 

This Week's My Maths:

All pupils have been set a range of different tasks on My Maths. These will have a start date of May 18th.

Don’t forget they can use the ‘Practice’ page first so they know what to do. It might be useful to have some paper for jottings.

 

In addition to the My Maths Tasks, there are also the White Rose Daily Maths tasks (with video tutorials) and the Hampshire Maths Team's 'Problem of the Week'.  The Problem of the week is accessible below  - to access the White Rose Resources, click on the link and look for your child's Yr Group Resources.

 

Problem of the Week:

Each week the Hampshire Maths team are setting a problem of the week for each year group. The problems have a worked example for you to use, and then a problem for you to try yourself. Check out this week's problems below - we'd love to see some pictures of your outcomes!

Maths Group - Additional Guidance

Miss Walton’s Group:

  • Use the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables - Why don't you send someone in our group a Rock Slam Challenge?
  • This week's focus for your My Maths Learning is still Addition and Subtraction. Please complete last week's tasks before starting this week's.
  • If you have completed all the My Maths tasks, why not try one of the booster packs - chose a topic you want to practise.

 

Miss Ivey’s Group:

  • Use the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables. I have sent you all a challenge on Rock Slam
  • This week's My Maths is revision on Fractions, Statistics and Measurement. Please make sure to use the 'Practice' option first and have more than one go if you score under 80%.
  • If you have completed all the My Maths tasks, why not try one of the booster packs - chose a topic you want to practise.

 

 Mr Willis’ & Mrs Symonds' Group:

  • This week's My Maths is focused around Decimals and there are several tasks related to that topic - some may be revision tasks and some may be new, but don't forget that you can always do the lesson before beginning the homework, just to remind yourself what to do.
  • DON'T FORGET, if you score under 80%, I will expect you to do the activity again!
  • This topic vaguely aligns with the BBc Bitesize resources and the White Rose Resources, so check both of those websites for further practice (although White Rose does include Equivalent Fractions, which we did recently).
  • Of course you can always visit the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables too.
